View theatre details
Seongbukdong Beedoolkee, an innovative contemporary theater company based in Seoul, South Korea, makes its NYC debut with an original take on the enduring Greek tragedy of Medea. MEDEA on Media recasts the ancient tale as a commentary on contemporary media and serves it to the audience in outrageous ways, including talk shows, action movies, Disney cartoons and an Instagrammable yoga class. With plenty of physicality and a dash of silliness, MEDEA on Media is also clever and profound. The work is performed in Korean with English supertitles.

Led by director Kim Hyun-tak, Seongbukdong Beedoolkee Theatre freely deconstructs the texts of both well-known masterpieces and modern Korean dramas to recreate them, incorporating contemporary social issues. Often, Kim’s performances use a different theatrical style depending on the material and topic, such as dance theatre, melodramatic film or physical theatre, and most of them include active audience participation.

MEDEA on Media is co-presented with the Korean Cultural Center New York to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the ROK-U.S. Alliance.
